Kirk Hammett Hopes Metallica’s New Album Will “Cut Through The Division And Bring People Together”

During a recent interview with Classic Rock, Metallica’s Kirk Hammett talked a bit about the band’s upcoming album. The guitarist says that he hopes the effort will help “bring people together.”

Hammett said the following:

“Metallica has always been about bringing people together through music. I think the sentiment now is that people need music more than ever to bring everyone together and collectively celebrate that we’ve got to this point. There’s a lot of division in the world, and hopefully this Metallica album will cut through the division and bring people together in ways that are more beneficial for everyone over all.”

He also added:

“We’ve tried to make the most of the COVID year-and-a-half, and we’ve been pretty successful. We’ve got together remotely and worked, and we’ve got together [properly] and worked. Things are moving really well. I would say that the music we’re coming up with is very appropriate for the times.”

“Music should bring everyone together, it should be a celebration. That’s what music is about. It’s not about selling albums or getting Grammys, it’s about putting out good music and helping the situation with that music.”
